Question about Konica Revio KD-500Z Digital Camera

1 Answer

Every few photos is blurry

Lately I when I take photos I find I need to take two at a time to ensure I get a good one. There is no pattern or set interval between blurry photos. When I take them they look fine on the screen but when I go to review them they are blurry, they will not let me zoom in to review them closer and they will not down load. I have tried high and med. resolution. Any thoughts? Could it be my memory card? I have an SD Imapct 1GB in it at the time.

Try to push the shutter button half way down first so the camera will auto focus first. You should hear the lens move to focus, then press it the rest of the way down to take the picture. Your pictures should be much better quality if you do it this way.

Increase resolution

The poster resolution and the computer resolution are completely separate. The cpt resolution controls the monitor screen display. The poster resolution refers to the camera pixels used in recording the original picture - it cannot be increased. The poster program is measuring the resolution of the file picture only and indicating that t will produce a blurry poster.

I have a Nikon d200 and need to take sports photos in a basketball court The sport is very fast moving. What should I set the camera to. Lately the photos are dark and or blurry

You want the fastest shutter speed you can get and the largest aperture possible.
If you're close enough and it's allowed, use the flash. The flash will freeze the action. However, it's likely to give you a dark background instead of a blurry background.
If not, use the Aperture Priority mode. Open the lens to its maximum aperture (smallest f/number). This will give you the fastest shutter speed for the existing lighting conditions. The fast shutter speed will freeze the action and the large aperture will blur the background, though the amount of freezing may be limited if the lighting is relatively dark, as in a high school gym.
Be aware that if you're shooting indoors you're going up against the laws of physics. The human eye can adapt much better than any camera. A high school gym will appear light enough once you've been inside for a few minutes, but it is much, much darker than a bright day outdoors.

There is no sound when I play back the video on my camera, My camera is Canon power Shot SX130. I am recording sound and cant not hear it when it is played back..HELP!! Question #2....When The flash is...

Ensure the volume is on under the Menu of your camera. That's about as much as I can tell you with that.

However, I can diagnose the blurry picture. What's happening is your exposure is set for too long, and your shutter remains open longer than it should.

Remove the camera from the AUTO setting and place it on the M setting.

From here, you will see something that either has a fraction like 1/200 or 0'3". What you want is to adjust that fraction using your toggle keys so that the fraction of the shutter speed is reduced to smaller increments.

A good reference is as follows

1'0" - Your shutter will be open for 1 second, gathering a lot of light. Anything moving in the photo will by blurry. Best used for still photo's in low-light conditions. Use a tripod or stable surface.

0'3" - Used for low light photo's where there is minimal movement. Not good for hand-held.

1/100 - Used for mid-light photo's where there is minimal movement. Can be taken hand-held, but a tripod is still recommended.

1/400 - Better for taking shots in well-lit scenes where things are moving. Camera blur won't be a problem unless subject is moving greater than 10mph.

1/1000 - Great for taking shots of things moving very quickly. Scene must be well lit and it will freeze the action of whatever it's taking a photo of. No tripod needed.

Hope this helps!

Pictures still blurry

Instead of green auto mode set to P mode and chagne the flash setting to non auto.If flash is is in auto mode flash will not fire and picture will be blurry.So your flash must fire every time (and it must not be decided by camera's auto flash mode).
I am sure this will solve your settings.
Please rate if satisfied.

Photos taken inside are fuzzy

i think the exposure settings have changed and set to hi if you can get the exposure setting to normal [+/-] to 0 or the shutter has been set to low or the iso has been set to low

but if u are skeptic about going to settings and changing those all important combinations then safest way is to restoring to factory defaults and from there u can keep experimenting again

if there is anything else that you would like to know u can mail me at [email protected]

happy clicking

Unfocused Pics

If you use the "macro" setting (the flower symbol on the command dial), and are holding the camera steady, it should work. Try to ensure sufficient light by shooting near a window. You should also disable the flash by using the arrow on the dial to go to the "no flash" setting. The main problem is most likely that you are shooting close to the images, so the macro setting is a must. Good luck.

My pictures are coming out blurry, after a year of good quality.

Check that the lens and other elements on the front of the camera are free from dust and grime.  The focus mechanism is not functioning properly and may need to be serviced.

Pictures are blurry; quality of photos seem compromised

As simple as this may sound, have you cleaned the lens lately? A lot of image quality deterioration comes from a finger print or other smudge on the lens. Digital cameras are succeptable to even the smallest gunk on the lens. Because the lens element is very tiny, use a cotton swab with a drop of lens cleaner (or isopropyl alcohol) to thouroughly clean and dry the lens. If it isn't a dirty lens, check your file-size and flash settings.
